You have to help me decide what I'm going to be now that I'm not a racing dog or a mommy dog. I looked up my name, Hilda, to see what it means. The first reference was to war or battle. That doesn't fit me AT ALL. I love everyone and everything.
Next I looked at the list of famous Hildas to see what they liked to do. I thought maybe I could pursue the same interest. I rejected neurosurgeon and clock maker. I keep dropping the tools I was using for practice, so intricate work probably isn't for me.
The next famous Hilda jobs got me REALLY excited...princess, ballerina, actress and painter. I would be AWESOME at those jobs. Maybe Flash will give me painting lessons.
My foster parents told me I probably couldn't earn enough, at least at first, to support myself so I still need a forever family. I'm totally okay with that. I want it all....a career and love.
If you'd like a princess ballerina actress painter girl dog who will love you SO much it's ridiculous, I'm your girl.
P.S. I have a kiss spot on my forehead for your convenience
Hilda is sweet and loving. She loves to snuggle with people and other dogs. She is also happy by nature and will dance when she thinks something exciting is about to happen.
Hilda is house trained, isn't destructive in the house, and walks well on a leash. She is living with a male greyhound and four cats. She isn't high prey, just initially wanted to chase the cats when they moved about. With supervision and training, she has learned not to chase. However, any new home would have to reinforce her training.
Hilda likes to play with toys, but her first love is people. She enjoys meeting new people, including children. She'd be happiest in a home in which she receives lots of affection. Although she could live alone in that situation, I think she's enjoy having another happy, loving dog.
The first day she stayed away from the dog beds and laid on the carpeting but she got over that habit fast. She’s now sharing the dog beds with everyone else. She’s doing wonderfully. Not one house accident so far! I hope it continues.
We would adopt her if we had room in our home.
